Wilshere has been stepping up quite a lot recently. Guess what he says about him improving with game time really is true. Voted MOTM by Andy Townsend against San Marino (Joe Hart won the award as he was jokingly voted by fans [made 1 save]) and is the official MOTM against Estonia. Hopefully he can keep away from injury and continue the good form, unlike Danny Welbeck who sadly 'rolled his ankle' and wobbled off the pitch. Get well soon Welbz! We need you!
I can't work out who's more annoying Andy Townsend or Garth Crooks
Andy Townsend fully looks like a young 😂
Andy Townsend, understand that Andros Townsend is one footed and a Peter Crouch. Only plays for England. Never well for Spurs.
Someone really needs to move that microphone away from Ray Lewington. While their at it take Clive Tyldsley's and Andy Townsend's too
Andy Townsend is still quite young. We have years of this drivel to contend with.
I can't work out what noise is annoying me more. Andy Townsend's "commentary", Ray Lewington's shouting or the sodding band!
What makes this game more intolerable is the commentary! Andy Townsend and Clive Tyldesley def are not Martin Tyler and Andy Gray
No matter how many replays he watched, Andy Townsend will never admit that Cahill stuck a foot out to trip that keeper!
Andy Townsend. You would be a far better commentator if you didn't talk.
Cant stand Andy Townsend a minute longer,turning over to Midsomer Murders

Laptop insurance - because accidents happen!
Clark Carlisle is the only co-commentator in the world I would gladly replace with Andy Townsend. That is quite an insult.
It's always disorientating when Tony Gale is commentating on a match. It's sounds like Andy Townsend if Andy Townsend knew about football.
I know nobody else is watching the Chelsea game, but Tony Gale is out-"in and around"ing Andy Townsend, if such a thing were possible!
Clive Tyldesley & Andy Townsend, how I've missed you on Champions League nights. Just need Jim Beglin to complete the fuzzy feelings.

andy townsend sterling is england best player full stop AGREED (y)
I think Andy Townsend (as much as I dislike him) is the first pundit I've heard say someone other than Rooney is our best player. Thank God. There is intelligent life out there after all.
"Raheem Sterling is England's best player full stop" Well said Andy Townsend.
I quote, 'Good to see Danny Wellbeck on.' Is Andy Townsend paid to commentate?
Is itv broadcasting a different England game to what is being commentated, as I thought andy Townsend just said England are starting to play well ?
Is Andy Townsend watching the same game as me the goal has lifted England he must be smoking crack lol
Techy query - on a Toshiba 42 inch 1080p TV, how do you turn down the bias on Andy Townsend?

I'd like to see a change any minute now. You Andy Townsend, gone.
How I have missed your pearls of wisdom Andy Townsend!
why didn't Andy Townsend Is A Massive Tosser! retire after World Cup, cos he is still talking utter ***
The only thing that could make this England game more boring would be if Andy Townsend read the entirety of 'Atlas Shrugged'.

This is the last time I liked Andy Townsend (pic via
Can one ever get tired of listening to John *** and Andy Townsend ?
You're wrong. In *** football is presented by Channel 5, hosted by Colin Murray & Andy Townsend is the lead commentator.
Alan Smith, Andy Townsend, Martin Tyler, Peter Drury, Clive Tyldesley who is your all time favorite commentator..?
With Adrian Chiles, Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend, it's safe to say that ITV Have the worst possible football coverage team.
I'd rather Jimmy Saville had come back for the new season than old bollock head Chiles and Andy Townsend

Michael Owen and Andy Townsend are commentary Gods compared to Dean Saunders,
as John Barnes and Andy Townsend said Suarez is the best they had ever seen. Me to, Suarez doesn't give up but Henry did.
For all of those not watching ITV (all of you), Andy Townsend is telling Lionel Messi what he's doing wrong.

ITV's coverage started badly, but (asides form Andy Townsend) has improved considerably during the World Cup.
No Adrian Chiles?! Surely we can't be lucky enough to have no Andy Townsend either?!
Pointers from Andy Townsend on how to win a World Cup semi final. Like Ronnie Corbett running a high jump training camp.
I don't know what's worse, an extra 30mins of this drab game or an extra 30mins having to listen to Andy Townsend
Andy Townsend needs to get in the Mark Lawrenson bin of redundancy.
“As good a time as any to tell you that the final is on so no Andy Townsend

Imagine if this game was on ITV. Just think what a mess Andy Townsend would be making of it.
All I can hear in my head is FIFA commentary from Andy Townsend - "it's too easy Clive, it's too easy". It's like a bad online performance!😐

Katie Hopkins is like the female Nigel Farage. Except she's actually more of a bigoted, ignorant *** than him! She describes herself as a 'Social commentator'. There we have it, there is a worse commentator than Andy Townsend after all! -Ewan
Don't know who is the worse co-commentator on itv. Clarke Carlisle, Andy Townsend or Lee Dixon
Did I really hear Andy Townsend say "Now it's a different ball game"?
Pretty sure Luis Garcia did that type of corner about 6 years ago in the champions league for us. Andy Townsend going on like it's new.
We've got "and rightly so" on the Andy Townsend bingo card already. And when I say on I obviously mean 'in and around'
Do I watch South Korea-Belgium or Algeria-Russia? Fact that Andy Townsend's co-commentating on former has made my decision for me!
Don't think P. Nev is too bad tbh, prefer him over Robbie Savage, Danny Murphy, Mark Lawrenson, Andy Townsend and Clarke Carlisle

Andy Townsend is the football pundit version of Stuart Barnes. So negative & judgemental about everything. Nothing is ever good enough
Andy Townsend 'you can argue that he doesn't do much wrong there' what apart from score you mean. Absolute ***
It only took Andy Townsend 19min to say "Thats Better" this match hisContract
I thought Andy Townsend was a bad commentator. Sam Matterface is worse. Fred scored an open goal not a world class one.
The last players to appear at the World Cup were Robert Fleck (Sco) and Andy Townsend (ROI), both in 1990
Phil Neville, Adrian Chiles, Andy Townsend, Roy Hodgson and Glenn Hoddle. This has been some World Cup.
Quentin Tarantino as Glenn Hoddle. Michael Madsen as Andy Townsend. Christoph Waltz as Roy Keane. Steve Buscemi as Adrian Chiles. QT's ITV.
*shrugs* talking more sense than Andy Townsend isn't exactly difficult (unless you're Chiles/Jonathan Pearce) or inspiring.
I think it would have to be Clyde Tyldesley. Or Andy Townsend. But Jonathan Pearce would be in the top three.

A bit rich coming from ITV who employ Adrian Chiles, Andy Townsend and Clark Carlisle - focus on your own problems!
I dread to think how many have complained about Clark Carlisle and Andy Townsend.
He was no worse than Michael Owen or Mark Lawrenson & a million times better than Andy Townsend.
Don't see how people moan about Lawrenson! Speaks like a true fan! Better than that boring Andy Townsend or worse Clark Carlisle
BBC have Mark Lawrenson, ITV have Andy Townsend we are lucky BT Sport aren't involved or Michael Owen would be involved too. KILL ME NOW!

Everyone moans about Andy Townsend and Phil Neville, Clark Carlisle is the worst commentator that's ever lived
Clark Carlisle is even worse than Andy Townsend, ITV coverage in general is so poor

please will you destroy Phil Neville, Andy Townsend and Clark Carlisle. Thank You.
Dno who I hate more Andy Townsend or Clark Carlise 😡😡

Agreed. I would rather have some decent analysis than 90 minutes of Andy Townsend style cliches.
Andy Townsend is right David Silva has this thing of missing sitters always looking to assist is a bit similar to Ozil,
Maybe i'm in the minority here but I actually don't mind Andy Townsend too much.

When Andy Townsend and Ryan Giggs talk, you pay attention. Well-done for getting them on board!
He is if he plays for England. Lennon, Townsend, SWP etc. It's been too long since we've had a player like him .
The best way to sum up Phil Neville's commentary last night is to say that it was even more monotonous than an Andy Townsend offering.
Phil Neville , making Andy Townsend sound like an informed football pundit !
on the bright side, he isn't Andy Townsend.
still miles better than Andy Townsend mind you!
when Andy Townsend described a red card as "the big card".
Seriously, there must be some jobs available in football commentary. Michael Owen, Phil Neville, Andy Townsend, Clark Carlisle. . Man alive!
I know we all mocked the monotone voice of Phil Neville, but in retrospect he spoke a lot more sense about tactics etc than Andy Townsend
rubbish.he was boring, dull and stated the obvious. Made Andy Townsend sound a genius
The people attacking the ITV studios may have just listened to 90minutes of Andy Townsend cliches. Just saying.
Andy Townsend "If Australia had scored a couple more last night, the result against Chile would have been a lot different !"
Well,if you get fed up of Phil Neville at least we've the erudite, witty & insightful Andy Townsend to inform & entertain!

please ask Gary Neville to make his commentary less monotonous by raising and lowering his pitch to avoid cloning Andy Townsend!
Are the BBC trying to steal worst co commentator from Andy Townsend with the introduction of Phil Neville?
For all those criticising Phil Neville, be careful what you wish for. It could be Andy 'full of it' Townsend next!
I'd still take Phil Neville commentating over Andy Townsend.
A lot of love for Phil Neville this morning, BBCs answer to Andy Townsend
it's a toss up who is worse him or Andy 'Goals' Townsend.
agreed. He was a bit monotone and dull but far far better than Andy Townsend on ITV who just talks nonsense
I am in Manchester for the weekend . Everyone talks like Phil Neville. Later I will be London where everyone talks like Andy bloody Townsend
You must be, Trev. Worse than Andy Townsend. Didn’t think it was possible.
I meant the presenter gent. Andy Townsend "His in England,form is temporary "I hope not, he's rubbish"
Don't know who's worse Phil Neville or Andy Townsend
Final thought on Phil Neville; remaining group games on ITV with Chiles, shrill twin commentary (Tyldesley/Drury) & Andy Townsend!
Was it just me or was Phil Neville the worst summariser ever?...even worse than Andy Townsend
Little Giant Ladders
Fantasy TV Coverage team: In the studio, Adrian Chiles, with Andy Townsend and Clarke Carlisle Commentator: Clive Tyldesley Co-commentator: Phil Neville
BBC v ITV. Brilliant coverage by the BBC last night. English people wanting England to win. Lineker, Shearer and Ferdinand gave a great insight as experts who have been there and done it. Danny Murphy was good and Phil Neville was excellent with his inside knowledge. Even Thierry Henry was very good, after the game, when Rio was sticking up for Rooney, Henry made the point he had to score that chance after 60 minutes. In comparison ITV are clowns and I would certainly question if Andy Townsend and Neil Lennon want us to win. Come on England !
Well, at least, you'll be spared Phil Neville and Andy Townsend for a few days.
Never thought I'd say this, but Phil Neville managed to make Andy Townsend look like a fairly decent pundit last night!
Is he next match on ITV bloomin hope so would rather suffer Andy Townsend
Wouldn't want to get locked in a lift with Andy Townsend and Phil Neville. What would probably make me more suicidal would be when the doors opened and Michael Owen is standing there.erm...erm.erm z
For all those moaning about Phil Neville. Just think, it could be Andy Townsend with ITV coverage. I'll let you think about that one.
And we all thought Andy Townsend was bad!
itv got andy townsend bbc 1 got Neville ffs sort it out arrrhhh.
It's a good job Gary Neville isn't commentating on itv with Andy Townsend cus that would be torture!!
Can't understand a word these french commentators are saying, but anything is better than listening to Andy Townsend...
you know Phil Neville is bad when you wish Andy Townsend was commentating!
Phil Neville sounds ridiculously subdued in his commentary. Delivering his analysis like he was at a snooker match. Beats Andy Townsend any day though.
he makes Andy Townsend sound like Richard Burton doing King Lear.
Congratulations to the BBC for finding a worse commentator than Andy Townsend

I'm glad Andy Townsend told me that the shot hit the back stanchion. I wouldn't have seen that being shown in real time, two replays and if Clive Tyldesley hadn't told me as well.
Andy Townsend is an absolutely cracking commentator. No one said, ever.
You can just tell Andy Townsend is spelling words wrong when he talks.
Watch itv coverage of Uruguay v Costa Rica .. Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend are the worst football commentary duo ever .Boring , repetitive , stating the bleeding obvious . And then at half time we get Adrian Chiles and Lee Dixon . Oh my god Gus Poyet and Fabio Cannavaro must be crying themselves to sleep , thinking Why. Why did we not get the BBC gig
Think Jessica Wildsmith and Charlotte Heath should do the football commentary. So far they have discussed : how yellow the boots are, who had the brightest boots, how sweaty they are and if Diego Forlan ever played for Villa. Good work girls. I'd rather listen to you than Andy Townsend, the ***
